May Ann Wootton, from Longridge has been accepted as the new Organ Scholar at St Peter's College, Oxford. She will be involved in playing for Evensong services and rehearsing the College choir, as well as completing a prestigious Oxford music degree. Mary Ann got an A* in her Extended Project Qualification on historically authentic performance practice. The Extended Project Qualification requires university level research and extended writing, and Mary Ann is the first student at Stonyhurst to take the EPQ. The exam board said '... the work involved was outstanding...' All of the College’s students with Oxbridge offers have secured their places. They include Alice Grout-Smith from Clitheroe who will read Chemistry at Hertford College, Oxford, Joe Bell from Hurst Green who will read Bio-Chemistry at St Catherine’s College, Oxford and Catriona Graffius also from Hurst Green who will read English at Christ Church, Oxford.
This year 57% of results were in the A*- B range, which is slightly down on last year. There was also a slight drop in top grades across the country in this year’s results.
Mr Andrew Johnson, the Headmaster, said ‘Once again we have a strong set of results which has allowed many of our students to go on to the universities and courses of their choice. In this competitive market this can be the hardest target to achieve, and our staff and students have worked hard to make this possible.’
